Missing Her So Tanjung Tualang We Went...

My girl didn't come back for two weeks and I kind of missed her.... hahaha.. so what does a mom do when she feels like that?  Yes, I drove up to see her, forty five minutes journey only... and since it was a Sunday, there was none other better place than going to Tanjung Tualang for our lunch!  After all, it is the nearest destination where we could have a nice and proper meal.
Since it was not festive season, 
the crowd was not there to "flog" the restaurants..
That is what I like.. no crowd....
And this time we went into Sun Luen Fong Restaurant...
We had these...
Her favourite steamed fish....
fried meehoon
 
"Yau Mak" with "fermented beancurd"
crispy fried "oysters"
different shapes from the ones we normally take..
and for these dishes, (plus fried rice)
the bill came to a hefty RM93!!
I feel it is a bit "overpriced."
After our lunch, we went to buy some "cookies" and other stuff along the street... and that was it.. Dropped her back to the college after getting some groceries and bid bye-bye to her till the next weekend.....  Well, this is the life of a mother and her child who leaves home after a certain year of age...

  6. Ooooo...all the nice dishes! Slurpsss!!! ONLY 45 MINUTES!!! I sure would go over whenever I can - maybe bring something nice that she loves to eat - Japanese, Italian.... My girl will be 1 and half hours away when she starts working - she'll be home every weekend, of course...and you can be sure that I may just hop over to send her any nice things to eat whenever I can.

  8. Well, at least it only takes you 45 minutes drive. Not festive time, also so expensive. Maybe the fish & oyster cost a bomb.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
